    FCA, PSA Agree To 50/50 Merger

    The Wall Street Journal
    October 30, 2019

    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Peugeot maker PSA Group of France have agreed on the terms of a merger that, if approved by both boards, would create the world’s fourth-largest auto maker by volume with a market value of more than $48.4 billion, according to people familiar with the situation.

    Peugeot’s board approved the deal on Wednesday. Fiat Chrysler’s board meeting was still in progress while the board of Exor, the Agnelli family holding company that controls the Italian-American car maker, was scheduled to meet later on Wednesday night.

    Fiat Chrysler Chairman John Elkann would become chairman of the newly merged company while Peugeot Chief Executive Carlos Tavares would be CEO. Both would have seats on the board of the new company, which would comprise six Peugeot appointees, including Mr. Tavares, and five from Fiat Chrysler.

    The U.S. and French governments have been briefed on the deal.

    Julian Assange would had called this choosing between chlorea or gonorrhea. But it might still be better than Renault.

    Edit: On the trivia side, Chrysler meet Peugeot again, remember they sold Chrysler-Europe (Simca and Rootes) to Peugeot. I saw this blog post on that case. https://www.allpar.com/news/2019/10/...to-merge-46363

    I ask because I'm not too familiar w/ Peugot's work, but I'm definitely aware of what Renault did to Nissan's quality....Nissan used to be a solid Toyota/Honda competitor until they got in bed w/ Renault. FCA's quality was Dodgy as is...throwing Renault into the equation could've been disastrous in terms of both perception and actual quality.

    I'm excited to see what kind of interesting rebadges we get. I just hope this isn't the end of the Dodge and Chrysler brands.

    They are pretty much dead at this point. I don’t want them dead, but the reality is they have been starving for products and it doesn’t look like there’s anything in the pipeline.

    So if Chrysler or Dodge start rebadging Peugeot cars at least they’d have something to sell

    Chrysler for sure. Dodge I highly doubt. PSA can inject some nice CUVs and powertrains to give them some life.
